| Comments: |
|your name||'dsu' is not a generally used romaji variant.|
I think it should be 'du'.
|dc||hmm, thats true. using the windows IME, "dsu" = "ｄす" which is silly.|
but "du" when you read it in romaji doesn't look like... dzu, even though the hiragana comes out correct as づ
まあ、難しいね。どうすればいい。 I want people who don't read hiragana to be able to use the site ideally. altho we may be way past that with all the kanji...
|Synonymous||Every book I have spells this as "tsuzukeru". || |
|ninja_k||To be fair... づ and ず have theoretically merged, except in names... so zu is ok.|
on a side note, is this really level 1? I use / hear this so often at work that I'm rather surprised.
|Miki||#5703 I would write 無視しろっ！ to emphasize. Though this is not CORRECT Japanese writing. Also, it is not appreciated that female speaks like this. I feel 無視して! is more sophisticated.|| |
|Olivier||This entry does certainly not belong to Level 1 but to Level 2 and it is so commonly used that before reaching Level 3, you get to know this pattern. Please downgrade this entry.|| |
|bamboo4||The input pattern for づ should be "du" and not "zu."|
|yookoso||Olivier, I went ahead and changed to level 2 - anybody disagree with that classification? || |
|赤毛||Total number of results searching from Google:|
- 923 for tsudsukeru
- 14 100 for tsudukeru
- 14 100 for tsudzukeru
- 67 800 for tsuzukeru
So I changed the name entry according to the last one.
I think the level of this entry is 3 because I founded 2 examples in JPLT3
http://www.mlcjapanese.co.jp/DownloadF/3-5-GrammarInPastTest.pdf and none in JPLT2
http://www.mlcjapanese.co.jp/DownloadF/2-5-GrammarInPastTest.pdf, so I changed the level too.
